This document first takes up the broader aspects of accountability, then details in later sections specific state legislation for assessment and accountability. There are three parts. Part I, "A Crisis in Education: Accountability and Quality," provides an overview of the current issues surrounding teacher accountability. Part II, "Guidelines for Quality Education," informs the reader of a checklist that may be used to relate elements of accountability legislation to the established needs of quality education. Part III, "Accountability: From Fantasy to Reality," suggests what teacher associations can do to operate under excessively restrictive legislation. (JB)
